Institute for Economic Research

IER is an autonomous non-governmental research organisation with a long tradition in the field of macroeconomic and microeconomic analysis. When the issue of the economic potential of creativity and design started surfacing in Slovenia, IER has been the main scientific institution dealing with this issue. IER carried out the first in-depth analysis of the CCI in Slovenia as a part of the project Creative Cities. Within this project, IER was also a scientific leader, monitoring the quality of major written outputs and helping out with the preparation of their methodology. Within another project ACT4PPP, IER conducted a study on PPP in Slovenia and PPP developments in the Municipality of Ljubljana. Possible PPP models for single smaller projects in Ljubljana were developed and proposed in cooperation with the Municipality of Ljubljana based on the experiences of other cities.
